Lovely place, nice, knowledgeable staff. Excellent view of the sunset over the city. The outside tables need some fixing as several had extremely wobbly tops, no one wants to spill their yummy beer.

Very nice tap room. Nice staff. Nice selection of beer and other drinks. Inside and outside seating. BB's Chicken is right downstairs which is perfect if you need lunch or dinner... and you can eat it at the tap room. The outside 4 top tables are pretty wobbly. Really easy to spill your beer.

Been going to the OG Gizmo for years, but this one is GREAT! Awesome inside, great outdoor patio, and awesome food right below. Top it off with a friendly staff and we had a great time!

Disclaimer: I'll receive a free pint for giving this brewery 5 stars. Complete waste on their part, as they would have gotten five stars no matter what! When you go to a craft brewery there's normally one or two good beers; not this place - I got a flight of six and they were all fantastic. Our bartender Zack was also super friendly and seems like a good human.

We recently hosted a small event at the Gizmo Brew Works Durham location and have only great things to say about the space, service, and drinks. The event coordinator we set the event up with and the bartenders who worked during the event were all great to work with and responsive to any requests we had. The actual space was bright and clean. The fact that the taproom has a variety of different types of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, was a benefit. Plus the beer is fantastic and can be ordered in multiple sizes. All in all, we would highly recommend the Gizmo Brew Works Durham Taproom for both events and a fun time out.

I love this place and so does my husband. The location is great and has awesome food places within walking distance. The staff is super friendly and dog friendly! Great place to hang out. I’ve been there at least 3 times since it’s opened.

Great view of Durham. Really enjoy the outside covered patio and the beers were also very tasty. Bartender was very friendly. Perhaps my favorite bar spot in Durham. Glad to have them in town.

Excellent staff and selection of brews. They are located upstairs with plenty of seating inside and out. The outside has space heaters above the tables for chilling evenings. Definitely recommend a visit as they have everything on the beer list: ales, lagers, sours, porters, stouts, IPA’s, imperial stouts, and WINES for the more refined taste. They also offer selections for sale with specialty brews they make.

Great space with plenty of room indoors and out. Good selection of beers on tap (I think 15-20 beers). Dog friendly and outside food friendly (they have some bags of chips you can buy as a snack but no kitchen). Located above and within walking distance of several food places so it's easy to grab food and then go sit there. Excited to go back soon!

Excellent location, a variety of craft beers (so many IPAs), friendly staff (Ansley, the manager was incredibly welcoming and kind), dog friendly (immediately served with water and toys) and atmosphere was family friendly! Close proximity to restaurants and outdoor seating & games. Will return often!

Super excited to finally have Gizmos open at University Hill in Durham! This place is great , lots of seating and outdoor space. They are pet friendly and of course their beers are awesome! They got just the right amount of different beers , and they’re right on top of BB’s Crispy Chicken. Let’s not forget the staff and how inviting and friendly they are. Keep up the good work guys!
